Courses are held at various locations and mostly during the winter months. They usually consist of a series of regular 2-hour sessions, each with a tea/coffee break in the middle and plenty of opportunity for discussion. Some sessions may comprise a field visit. There will be no essays to write, nor exams to take, but students will be encouraged to read around the subject. Where possible there will be a book box for class members to borrow from, and members of DAS may borrow from the Society’s Library at Berkeley House.

The following programme of lecture course is offered for the period October to December 2018. These courses are open to non-members as well as to members of the society.
